    I know people who double on euphonium & bass trombone, and I don't think there is any inherent reason not to do this. Having a really solid double on an instrument used in orchestras and jazz...

    Thanks for posting this - I had it on my list to do today. This is GREAT NEWS! Baltimore Brass is one of "the good ones" out there and I'm glad they will stick around. Here is the post for those who...

    Right! The Wessex Sinfonico also has that system. These don't go against my hesitations above - they screw in and make a solid connection.

    I think a removeable leadpipe would be fun, but it also compromises the design and stability. On some horns, like Adams, the leadpipe is soldered to the bell, and I assume that was a design decision...
  5. Holst 2nd Suite in F - Coast Guard Band from 1972

    I just rescued this recording from a failing reel-to-reel tape. This is the Coast Guard Band in 1972, and I had been in only a couple years at that point. The solo part came off pretty well, I think....
  6. Sticky: FS: Really Nice Besson New Standard Euphonium in Satin Silver

    This one is in fine shape with good plating. Seller says compression is good. I'm just not seeing much denting anywhere, including on the small tubes on the front of the valve where denting is common...
  7. Well, most compensating horns are heavy for good...

    Well, most compensating horns are heavy for good reason - all the extra tubing involved and the longer pistons. Among those, the lightest option would be the Adams E1. The selected model is cheapest...

    One other thing to try is to make sure it is not a spring noise. Because you had the piston out, it is common to have the spring seat crookedly when you reinsert it. You could also try swapping the...

    Oh, that's not good! But it is fortunate that you have stainless steel valves - they are hard to hurt.

    Is it possible it landed on the valve guide? It's possible to warp the plastic, although it...

    I'm always hesitant to ban someone, but this sounds like a very good "ban" to do! Thanks for the update.

    It bugs me, too. A couple things I bought lately have been obvious photo copies (or something similar) of older publications. The output is too "thick" and is hard to read. These seem to be made from...

    Wow - that's one I should have noticed! The valves look to be in great shape, which is a huge factor. The horn has the medium receiver, which makes it even more special given the condition....
  14. Sticky: FS: Conn Connstellation Curved Bell Euphonium in Lacquer

    Here is a very low price for a Connstellation that is in better shape than most. It looks like the trigger is missing the thumb-rod and there may be a bell crease. The finish seems good and I don't...

    Thanks for the info. I tried on FF, Chrome, and Edge on my Windows 10 PC and they all work.

    It's possible it will work after you reboot next time. It is also possible that an ad blocker could be...

    Happy Birthday U.S. Coast Guard!

    You know, when I first joined the CG Band, it was just a way to get a military job in a band. (But in fairness to me, I was exceptionally stupid about life at the time!) The longer I was in, the more...

    Yes, good advice. I used to do so in the CG Band, although I played the majority of the solos. In pieces where there was a repeat, like the Holst 2nd Suite's march, I would play the solo one time and...

    Those are both great tips! I especially like the second one - it's so much more subtle than looking to the section and shouting "H" or whatever rehearsal letter is there!

    That might be a good thing to try! The CG Band changed our seating arrangement a few times, and it was enlightening to hear from a different perspective.
  24. What Is the Role of the Principal Euphonium Player?

    This came up on Facebook in the "euphonium players" group. Here was my answer; please add anything I might have missed or correct me if you disagree with any point(s):

    That's a very good point! The main value I see in the Chinese horns is that they brought well-playing compensating horns down to a low price. But if you truly don't care about the compensating...
